All year, the Bay Path alumni community is engaged in activities that range from supporting our students through mentorships to cheering on our performing arts students to making our graduates look the best they can on Commencement Day. Here’s an album with some of last year’s highlights. Maybe you can pick out the face of a friend or, better yet, recall a memory that brings a smile to your face.

Remember, we’re always looking for alumni volunteers. If you’re looking for community or just want to give back, contact We want to hear you roar.
